A Dynamic Networked Browser Environment for Distributed Computing

Many organisations have a large number of computers with varying usage patterns. Some of these machines at different locations are often free from time to time leaving them to do very little useful computation or none at all. It is at these times that this dynamically changing environment of machines can be used for a more useful task. This project reports the development and feasibility testing of a dynamic distributed computing environment. This is achieved by making use of ubiquitous web browsers to harness these underutilised computers. Therefore taking the idea of distributed computing away from the traditional paradigm of fixed hosts to which it is often associated.
